The objective of this research is to examine the extent to which current approaches to management control systems are appropriate to organisations today. While this would be a massive scope for a project, my particular focus is upon the control of the individual and his/her contribution to organisational activity and effectiveness. Whilst the individual is the primary unit of analysis, he/she cannot be viewed in an organisational context without taking due account of the factors that also effect the organisation itself. The issue is whether the changing environment and the changing systems of control within organisations have impacted on individuals in such a way as to undermine their capacity for self motivation and the giving in full of their productive contribution ability to the organisation. Arising out of this, are there issues for the organisation in terms of it's future? The project seeks to address issues of control, accountability and the role of the individual in organisations today. It is about the interaction between the individual, the organisation and systems of organisational control and the possible disconnections therein.
